Your house sucks.

True, that house seems to have bad luck, was hoping the bad spirits left.

That is unbelievable, why would anyone store that much musical history in one place where it is not really protected from something as simple as fire or flood, no reason for this sillyness.

we had this place "cleansed"  Were told things like,"DO NOT remove these stones from the property... a handful of crystals.

.... we were also told the original owner/builder squirreled stuff in the walls.   I have opened almost every wall to insulate... so far, all I found was an old pair of wire pliers.  Nice, but, no treasure.

 

I entertained to kid yesterday.

  She cooked pancakes for her breakfast. She did good, especially for a 5yr old.  Mixed the batter. Poured it on the griddle.... even had her flipping them.

  After it got too warm to be outside, I filled the kiddie pool... and we played. Splashing and carrying on. She was laughing so hard, we had to stop for her to catch her breath. 

I call that a good day

Have rain coming in on the radar again, started on me as soon as I stepped off the sidewalk a couple hours ago.

I have to clean up around the twelve foot wide perimeter, only do it a third as much as I should recently.

I could start a nursery, nobody would want the poison ivy or other vine coming over from Mordor. I wondered why that chinese family burned everything off the lawn with weedeaters for several years. I mean all the way to the dirt, bare dirt, took down all the trees and covered the literally rotten wood siding in the gables with vinyl. Now I know that the bad stuff went under the fence and popped up in my yard where there was decades of rich dirt around the perimeter. (smiley with steam coming off my head)

Oak, Maple, RedBud, ligustrum bush/trees too. All volunteers from stuff dropped by the birds. Got the two 32 gal lawn trash cans stuffed full already.

Second coffee should be ready by now.

So, got really wasted and your friends drew all over you while you were passed out.  I hate when that happens. :P

So your into pain now, I had no idea. :lol:

Just kidding, but I know it hurts, whoever did it did a really good job. Very nice and really good shading makes it really nice.

 

I have to admit I like the Koi but this has it beat.

Another day of near record heat. That doesn't take a big jump. Average temp is 100`. Record is ~110`.

w/o A/C or swamp box... the temp is 15 - 20` cooler indoors.

 

You will hear us talk strange stuff, though

how often have you heard, "Honey, I used up all of the cold water"? Tap water gets to tepid after a few minutes in the shower.   Cool showers don't last long.

 Knackered my back vacuuming yesterday.  Moving a little slower than usual. Meds will make sure of that. lol

 

@dtel

You "work out of the home? 

Me, too. If you can call housework "working out of the house". I am still trying to realize retirement.

 

BorderPatrol sound busy this AM. I hear a chopper working across the valley.

We did not even make it to 70 here yesterday because of all the rain, still cool right now. Darn humidity still feels like 90% out there though. We'll be using the ac again soon, back to normal by the weekend.

@oldtimer

will appreciate this

Made loko moko for the wife last night. New to her... I thought I made it before. Nothin' fancy. A couple scoops of rice. A hamburger patty topped with a fried egg or two, then smothered in brown gravy. Ketchup/catsup and tobasco are the usual condiments to it.

 

Went to the house to close it up. The BP Blackhawk had a bunch pinned down in the draw behind the house.  Just another day. 

 

my day will be done before it gets started. Emptying and refilling the kiddie [yeah.. kiddie]  pool sounds like a reasonable goal for the day.

 

I would be chasing wilting plants with the hose. Got lazy and set drip lines. On a timer... but I find myself overriding it.  Need to make a seasonal change to the program.

Summer weather seems to have been postponed in NE Ohio.  I believe the high is 66 today with more rain, but after a couple of stunning days, it's fine, but the pool isn't coming up to anything near swimming temperature.  I refuse to put a gas heater on it, but may be looking for a passive solar solution.  First year for my granddaughter to really enjoy the pool, so I'm going to do something.

No one puts ketchup on loco moco...or are they that whacko on Kauai?  Tabasco--acceptable, Shoyu--standard.
